[ hinge squeaks ] [ clicks, hums ] you love the planetarium. to be without the planetarium causes you horrible pain. all you want to do is help the planetarium thrive. to not do so makes your stomach ache with needlelike stabs -- and right over here we see the constellation orion. orion's belt is made up of three stars, one of which... dude, what just happened? what do you mean? come on. we got to get out of here before something bad happens. don't pick your nose, hon. i wasn't pickin' it! i had an itch, for cryin' out loud! don't be nervous. i'm sure you'll win. i don't know. there's a lot of competition. do you think i might win, mommy? i hope so, honey. then perhaps we can eat for a little while. hey, look! they're giving away bread outside!

well, we certainly want to congratulate all our finalists. only one of our finalists can win the grand prize. and unfortunately, that finalist is eric cartman. yes! i'm the best! you were actually our last choice. but the other children have unexpectedly taken jobs as volunteers at the planetarium. [ deep voice ]that's odd. sweet. it appears that more and more south park residents are discovering the wonder and joy of the planetarium. here with a special report is a 34-year-old asian man who looks strikingly similar to ricardo montalban. thanks, tom! yes, indeed. the planetarium has become very popular as word spreads that it really isn't as lame and stupid as once suspected. i'm here with the planetarium operator, dr. adams. thank you. i'd like to open an invitation to all south park residents to come see a special free show this evening. i guarantee it will change the way you think about the plane'arium. so bring the whole family to the planetarium
10:54am

[ chuckles ] oh, really? yeah, i just thought i'd come show them around so they'd know there's nothing to be scared of. actually, this is a pretty inopportune time. okay. i'll be quick, then. of course, officer. come on in. [ robotically ] hello, children. oh, no! they got chef, too! welcome to the planetarium. well, it's nice to see you finally got a real job, chef. i love my work. i know what you mean. i've always loved the planetarium, too. would you like to see the stars, officer? no! no! that would be superduper! don't do it, officer barbrady!

11:04am
"now, you put me in quite the pickle. "you see, with those earphones on, "you can't hear me. "but the odds are highly against you "cracking open that yapper "and annoying me to death. so, what to do, what to do, what to do? "aw, hell." stop addressing me as dr. cox in front of your patients. when they find out my actual name, they tend to page me with questions when they realize just exactly how inept you really are. oh, and as an added safety measure, from now on i will only be responding to doc, doctor, caesar, or the big cheese, and, no, i'm not joking, not now, not ever. hnnh! j.d.: see, things never really change around here. j.d.: surgical and medical still play each other in basketball. i'm gonna toast you so bad, your mama ain't even gonna recognize you. yeah? we-well, i heard that your sister started drinking again. j.d.: i'm still not great at smack talk.
11:05am
so, it's not supposed to be true? [whispers] no. [crying] ohh. let it pour, big guy. j.d.: and elliot was still searching for something to turn things around for her. oh, my god! isn't she beautiful?! i mean, this car has totally maxed out my credit, but my self-esteem's been so low lately that i think it's worth it, don't you? i just deliver the cars. she's all yours. frick! j.d.: really, the only difference is that by the third year nothing catches you by surprise. mrs. farr's still having acute abdominal pain. so, what's wrong with me, doctor? j.d.: oh, good lord. i have no idea. ok, don't panic. just do what all doctors do in this situation and fake a page. [pager beeps] uh-oh. got a code 3 down the hall. what's that? uh, code 3? not as bad as a code 4, but a hell of a lot worse than a code 2.

11:10am
mnseqeqeqegóq÷7÷7÷7÷7÷7÷7 ohh, i cannot figure out what's wrong with mrs. farr. i gotta go ask cox. why wouldn't you ask me? because you're a surgeon. you just cut people up. you don't actually know anything. oh, yeah. dr. cox. dr. cox. big cheese. yes? [squeaking] j.d.: if you're wondering why dr. kelso's nose is squeaking, ...breaking down and weeping in front of everyone! about a week ago, he was torturing elliot and dr. cox, well... ohh! needless to say, there were consequences. [squeaks] perry, great news. [squeaks] i managed to swing it so that you get to go over to the state pen today and do the annual inmates' physicals. oh, hells bells, bob-o. if you wanna fire me, just do it.
11:11am
i would, but even though this room was quite crowded when you sucker-punched me, apparently nobody saw it happen. [chuckles] uh, saw what happen, sir? [squeaking] so, dr. cox, can you, uh, look at her chart? newbie, did you not see what just happened? kelso is so far up my ass that i can taste brill cream in the back of my throat, and, you, you're-- you're a third-year now. wake up. this whole "dr. cox riding in to the rescue" part of the show is over. [pager beeping] no, you're on your own. j.d.: elliot's unlucky streak continued with the head of the radiology department. dr. moyer, uh, you told me my patient had colitis, and it turns out it was just traveler's diarrhea. so? that sounds like good news. yeah. he took it as bad news, maybe 'cause of the unnecessary colonoscope i shoved 3 feet up his pooper? what do you want me to do? uh, a-apologize to my patient and tell him it was your mistake, no big deal?
11:12am
think i'm gonna pass on that one. see, i got you pegged as one of those spineless types that's not gonna cause me any trouble no matter what i do. so thanks for stopping by and don't forget your car door. i just don't want it to get stolen, ok? that was me not caring. what? j.d.: now that we can always hear dr. kelso coming, some people have modified their work habits. so, you're engaged to that surgeon guy? mm-hmm. is it serious? no, ted. we swing. [squeaking] squeaky's a'comin'!
11:13am
[squeaking stops] [rapid squeaking] oh, hey, bobcat! listen, i was hopin' that maybe you could get someone to cover for me out at the prison tonight. i know that the very idea of you doin' a favor for me makes those ass cheeks clench up so tight that we could shove a lump of coal in there and you'd probably crap out a diamond, right? [chuckles] oh. come on, bob. i can't even remember the last time i saw my son, and you--you-- you're a father, for god's sake. you understand, don't you? my son was recently kicked out of his hare krishna sect for being too much of a hippie and is currently residing in the portland subway system. the point, perry, is that the only thing i care less about than my son is your son. have fun at the big house. [squeaking] hey. you guys know that unbelievably handsome new anesthesiologist? yes. no. no. well, he didn't know i was engaged, so he asked me out to a movie tonight.
11:14am
oh, if he's paying, get a brother some sno-caps. turk, why don't you ever get jealous? woman, look at me. i mean, how could someone with all of this here be jealous of any of that out there? you know what i realized when i was dragging my car door around? i cannot remember the last good thing that happened to me at this place. i mean, what is it about me that makes everybody walk all over me? no self-confidence. you can be a baby sometimes. your voice gets really high when you're upset. [high voice] rhetorical question, ok?! now, i'm getting smoothies. who wants one? peach fizzle. banana razzmatazz? orange goo-goo. got it. [pager beeps] mrs. farr. you know what? the only way i'm gonna figure out what's wrong with this woman is to start running tests for everything. good luck, bambi. look at the time. j.d.: in a hospital, you can never try to get anything done friday after 5:00 p.m. because anyone who could actually help you is out of here like a gunshot. [gunshot] hello? anyone?
